So you did know about the htdig@htdig.org mailing list 3 weeks ago, right? ;-)

Not really. That's why the list isn't such a bad idea after all. Maybe
someone else will.

I never ran into anything like this on 6.0 or 6.1, but I haven't had a chance
to build htdig 3.2 recently, so I can't rule out a recent bug in the db code
or its configure script.
